There are worse ways you could spend a sunny afternoon than at the Anglers Tavern. Like waterskiing with Paris Hilton, or lunch with Brad Pitt. Yessiree, they're both worse things you could be doing. Why? Well, it's no big secret that the views from the beer garden at the Anglers - views of the river and surrounding bush - are more relaxing than a shiatsu, or that the bistro inside will feed a Navy ship worth of hungry mouths (or your average family). Add to this live sports and regular live bands and DJs, and you probably won't want to go anywhere else this summer. The bistro bar inside serves all manner of tap beers and Australian wines, as well as cocktails and spirits galore. A pint of Cascade or a glass of crisp rose will see you out to the beer garden proper, where the rest of Maribyrnong (and surrounds) are usually sunning it up. A swag of simple outdoor furniture awaits for you to lounge in, while inside the decor is a little more designer - but still within the non-offensive realms of most hotels. The outdoor bar will also ensure you never have to leave your sunny table for long. Owing to its proximity to Flemington Racecourse, the Anglers also receives a thumping over racing season. Feel free to pull off those high heels and swan out to the beer garden to soak up some sun with those lads wearing their ties around their heads. There are also gaming facilities on sight, so you can enjoy the races in a more convivial atmosphere if you wish.
